CHEECH AND CHONG’S LAST MOVIE – Documentary Spotlight – *WORLD PREMIERE*

Bursting onto the comedy scene in the early 1970s, Cheech and Chong brought drugs, sex, and rock’n’roll into the oeuvre, transforming them into stand-up-icons, counterculture rock stars, and Hollywood legends. Explosively funny, their irreverent stoner humor has translated into sold-out concerts, platinum-selling records, and box-office-smashing films. How did Cheech & Chong ignite the imaginations of a global audience and maintain their relevance through 50 years (and counting) of pop culture? The first ever fully authorized Cheech & Chong documentary takes you on a poignant and hilarious journey into the lives and partnership of one of the greatest comic duos of all time.

STAX: SOULSVILLE, U.S.A. – TV Premiere – *WORLD PREMIERE*

“STAX: Soulsville, U.S.A.” tells the story of an underdog, interracial record label that ushered in the groundbreaking music of Otis Redding, Isaac Hayes, Booker T. & the M.G.’s, The Staple Singers, Sam & Dave and many others. Defying the notion that Black artists needed to be “made marketable,” the Memphis-based label went from ultimate outsider to one of the record industry’s most influential producers of soul music. It’s a quintessentially American story of an audacious group of individuals who dared to make their own music on their own terms creating an institution that has continued to help define our culture long after the label itself has gone.
